Oh, I see that now. I didn't interpret it that way.
But, if we're going to force users to use a 1.8 runtime, I don't see the  
point of not using everything it provides. If someone is already using  
Java 8, I'd expect them to use the full set of features of the language.

I didn't think about this before. Good catch, Bob! I agree with you.

Agreed. Another thing you've thought and I didn't, Bob. You're making me  
feel embarrassed! hehehe
